Deets will lead with his heart and head | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

We have known Joe Deets and his family for the past 13 years, ever since the day he came to help us assess whether our property would be appropriate for installing solar panels. From that time till now, Joe has proven to us that he cares about more than simply helping individuals decide about positive energy solutions for their homes. He consistently has our whole community in mind and has shown dedication and perseverance to achieve shared goals.

Joe approached us several years ago with the prospect of participating in a community-funded solar array on the roof of city hall. We loved that idea, but we knew that it would present many hurdles before it could come to fruition. Joe was optimistic, though fully realistic, about the challenges the project would face, but he forged ahead, assembled like-minded supporters, worked with city hall and with our state government, and saw the project through.

Even now, Joe remains our liaison with both the city and the state, and he continues to be a thorough and dedicated advocate for this win-win project. The solar array benefits the city, its investors, and all of us who live here, by lowering city hall’s energy bill while helping our environment.

We know that Joe leads with both his heart and his head. He is positive, energetic, thoughtful, and committed to making positive changes in our community. We hope you will join us in voting for Joe Deets for City Council.
